>>109227095>How do you distinguish between a trender and an actually dysphoric person? There are guides online on how to doctor shop and what to say to get HRT prescribed.
I can't say I have a perfect answer for that. I've been arguing less from a practical position of weeding out who is or is not, and more from a focus on situations where it's the correct treatment for someone suffering from a physical condition. I can acknowledge the necessity for a concern in false diagnosis, but that's more an issue to raise with diagnosis practices than with the actual procedure of transitioning.>Which becomes a problem when you get to the bedroom.
You say that, but, and it pains me slightly to fall back on this as an example, the major perception of transgender porn stars is as "chicks with dicks", even when they have their genitals on full display. Studies into attraction towards transgender individuals pretty consistently shows that men who would otherwise consider themselves heterosexual perceive transwomen largely indistinguishably from women, with the genitalia being as relevant as any other feature. So, in that instance, it's once again largely reliant on the specific person that you have in the bedroom.>>109227147
Correct, men are just overdeveloped women.
Joking aside, the point is that in cases of dysphoria the brain is expecting certain responses and not getting them. The ultimate expression of this, theoretically, is not being able to cope at all with having a masculine sex organ, making male arousal or stimulation, and especially penetration, uncomfortable. There is obviously a difference in sensation between having a penis or neovagina stimulated, and that can apparently affect how the brain responds enough that it is beneficial in some cases, but I don't have the utmost confidence in it.>>109227275
Still waiting for it to come out.
